The Carolina Rollergirls have extended their partnership with the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle’s BackPack Buddies Program through 2009! This program targets kids who access free and reduced-price lunches at school, but need other nutritional support over the weekends. BackPack Buddies Partners help the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle collect backpacks and the kid-friendly non-perishable food, and pack and deliver the bags for the children.
